John 8:31-32 – Set Free

Today’s Reading: 1 Samuel 18:5‐19:24, John 8:31‐59, Psalm 112:1‐10, Proverbs 15:12‐14

John 8:31-32 So Jesus said to the Jews who had believed in him, “If you abide in my word, you are truly my disciples, and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”

Observations:

  • Said to believers
  • If you abide in my word, then you are true disciples
  • If you abide in my word, then you will know the truth
  • The truth will set you free

Apply: To make sure I abide in God’s Word through the busy season of summer, I am committing to Bible reading before breakfast.

What does “set you free” mean to you in the context of this passage?

  1. To be set free of my bondage to sin. This reminds me of Matthew 11:28 where Jesus says he will relieve us of our burdens. Praying for another great summer at Crier Creek.

    1. Clark, I believe you are right on. The context of this passage is talking about freedom from the bondage of sin. It reminds me of Romans 6. Thanks for your prayers.
